Family Shield Ministries

Did you know that the gospel-focused, Christ-centered Family Shield radio program airs on 54 radio stations and is heard by more than 850,000 people each week? Sometimes people are surprised to learn that the radio program has aired for over 28 years and that we have designed and produced more than 1300 programs. The radio program & podcast is one of several evangelism and educational ministries we coordinate. Many who listen and contact us through our Response Center do not know Christ. Others need to be encouraged in their faith journey. Your support makes our outreach beyond the walls of the church possible. Thank you!

Family Shield's Counter Cult Ministry

The Family Shield Counter Cult Ministry equips Christians to witness to Jehovah's Witnesses (JW) and Mormons. Often those we serve and equip are family members and friends of JW and Mormons.

I was excited and honored to be part of a panel discussion for a video being produced by The Lutheran Church--Missouri Synod on Witnessing to Jehovah’s Witnesses. It will be part of the LCMS Everyone His Witness program. Rev. Mark Wood is the host. The new video will be available by November at:

The panel included me, an ex-JW that is now a LCMS pastor, and the man who witnessed to him when he was in college. We recorded for 5 hours, but the edited version will be 60-90 minutes. One story I shared was about Sharon and her family. Her grandmother contacted me to help their family when she learned her granddaughter was studying with the Jehovah’s Witnesses. After contacting Sharon’s mother and receiving her telephone number, I called Sharon and mentored her by phone, and answered questions about the differences between Christianity and the Jehovah's Witnesses. Reaching those studying with JW’s before they are baptized into the Watchtower Society is critical. Sharon listened, asked many excellent questions, and eventually stopped studying with the Jehovah’s Witnesses. One year later she had a new baby. Her father, a pastor, was able to baptize him. Praise the Lord!

Here are two articles I've written on this topic:
Jehovah's Witnesses Skipped My Home Again
A Divine Appointment with a Jehovah's Witness

Mission Field on our Doorstep: Jehovah’s Witnesses will equip Christians to share their faith in Christ with the Witnesses at their door.
